Backup website need info permissions

hello,
I do a backup of my website every week, I just download all the files from the website
to my computer with database from MySQL etc... and then burn them into a CD .
the thing is that I would like to create something that can tell me, or print into a file
all the permissions of the dirs lets says that If I type 'ls -alR > info.txt' I see public files
and some are just system files etc.. instead of (-rw-rw-r--  1 apache apache 55380 Jul  6 15:37 rans.log)
I would like something like (755 /home/dir/html/rans.log)  I want to keep a record of that just in case one day
I change hosting company, I know which dirs,files and what permissions they have.
thanks

If you have a shell access to a host with your website you could archive the whole document root of your site with tar:

tar cvjf backup.tar.bz2 /path/to/your/document/root
( or tar cvzf backup.tar.gz if you want gzip compression instead)

and then download this archive to your computer and burn it to cd.

This way you have all your files in one archive and also you have all permissions stored with it as well :)

and on your new host you just upload previously created archive and extract it with following command:

cd /path/to/your/new/document/root

tar xvpjf backup.tar.bz2 ( where backup.tar.bz2 is archive that you hav uploaded)
or tar xvzpf backup.tar.gz if you used gzip compression.

btw. I'd suggest to make checksums with md5sum for files which are recorded on DVD-R(W) or CD-R(W).
Had a lot of crappy files on some cheap DVD-R's...
